U 13 hurling 


First league win for the U13 


On Thursday last week Ballyhea was the visitors to Kilworth taking on  our U13 team. From the first whistle we were on the ball, fighting for everything. And we got on the score board first. Some sloppy defence let  

Ballyhea into the game as we conceded some soft goals. But in all fairness to the lads, they kept on battling. At the half time we down by 2 points, 2-5 to Ballyheas 4-1. The second half was a bruising encounter where no quarters given. We added a goal early in the half and kept the pressure on. And three quarters way through the match we had gone into a 5 point lead. As all teams get a purple patch, Ballyhea was about to have theirs. When they broke through our defence, the shot went straight at our goalie, who blocked this but for the rebound to land in front of the advancing attacker, pulling on the ground sending the ball towards the corner. But our goalie was up to the task stopping the second shot. They did  how ever find the back of the net a few minutes later leaving only two points in it with very little time let on the clock. We did manage to hold on and got our first win of the season 4-6 to 5-1. It just shows that the lads have it in them when they put their minds to it. Well done lads on a great performance. The Team K Heggtveit, E O’Donovan, J Kearney, CJ Kenneally, C Dunne, B Carey 1-0, C Coakley, D Allen, J Foley, N O’Sullivan, L Coffey 2-0, M Sheehan 1-5, O Collins-O’Mahoney, M Carey 0-1, R Jordan, D Hynes.  



U 13 finishes the league  against Ballygibblin.


We hosted Ballygibblin in our last league match in Kilworth on Monday last. And after the brilliant display against Ballyhea in our last match, we did not show on the night. Second best to everything and the final score reflected this. They have a lot to learn and have to learn from this and keep pushing forward. We had three new lads entering into the team and given that this was the first time they were with the team they did very well  The final score Kilara Og 1-3 Ballygibblin 6-13. The team K Heggtveit, E O’Donovan, J Kearney, CJ Kenneally, C Dunne, B Carey, C Coakley, D Allen, J Foley 0-1, N O’Sullivan, L Coffey, M Sheehan 0-1, D Hynes, M Carey 1-1, R Jordan, J Buckley, R O’Riordan, B O’Keeffe.

On Thursday last all roads was leading to Glanworth as our U14 team was taking on Ballycastle Gaels in the quarterfinal of this year’s football championship. The lads have pre paired well for this match. From the off we were fighting for every ball, and even though Ballycastle got on the score board first the lads did not drop their heads but upped their game and against a strong breeze we got the first goal of the match after some great team work. Ballycastle continued to notch points to their tally but we were constantly hot on their heels, and as the half went on we were more economical with the ball, and we made every attack count by adding to the scores. As  the half time whistle went the scores read Kilara Og 3-3 Ballycastle 2-12. There was only six points in it and we felt that this was well in our favour going into second half. We got off to a flyer with a very fast goal and we continued with several points before Ballycastle managed to get on the score board. They then hit a small purple patch and got their noses ahead again. But at this stage of the match we put it into over drive and with the match hanging in the balance we got our self in front. It goes to show just how much heart and pride this bunch of boys have. They never gave an inch and as we were entering into added on time we are one point up and controlling the ball. Then Ballycastle managed to squeeze one more attack and they managed to stick the ball in the back of the net. It was like someone let the air out of the balloon. We conceded two more points in the last few minutes of the match. Final score Kilara Og 5-10 Ballycastle Gaels 4-17.

What a match of football we were treated to it had everything from great goals, fantastic points and brilliant team work from the backs to the forwards and brilliant goaltending. This is a match that you all should be very proud of, in the way that you never gave up. Well done lads you have done yourself, your club and your parents proud. We would like to thank everyone that came to support us on the night.

U13 football


On Monday 18th May we travelled to Mitchelstown to play our last league match. On an evening that resembled a winters day, cold, wet and windy we never got out of the blocks. We let Mitchelstown do what they wanted, and by half time we were so far behind that the second half was all about showing pride for the jersey and team mates. We had most of possession and dominated the territory. Two quick goals gave us the motivation to press on. We added two points to our score but this was as close as we came. Mitchelstown added to their score in the last few minutes of the match, final score Kilara Og 2-2 Mitchelstown 6-8.

U14 Football


On Thursday last we hosted Lyre in the league, this also served as part of our preparations for the championship. The lads have put in a lot of hard work and now we are starting to see this paying off. From the start we got stuck in and against a strong breeze we defended very well and although Lyre had a lot of the possession they were not able to convert this into scores. The whole team was working as a unit and when we had the ball inside the oppositions 21 we took our chances very well. And as the short whistle sounded we held a one point lead. When the second half started and we had the wind in our backs we were looking to build on the score line. But Lyre started better and got on the score sheet first, and they continued to press forward. We had our purple patch and added a goal and two points but we were not able to build on this. As the full time whistle sounded the score line read Kilara Og 4-4 Lyre 6-8.

U 13 hurling        

On Monday the 11th we made the short trip to Fermoy to take on our neighbours in hurling. Our season so far has had its ups and downs, so the selectors made some positional changes to the team and gave the lads new assignments. The lads settled well into their new positions and gave the team a life. We had a good start to the match and the boys contested all over the field. We had scoring chances that on another day goes over the bar and lands in the back of the net. As the game progressed Fermoy got some good scores from play that we were not able to match. At the final whistle the score line read Kilara 2-2 Fermoy 5-15. We are making progress with the team and the lads are improving with every training session and match.

U14 football

Thursday evening we travelled to Ballyclough to play St. Kevins in football. After a very frustrating first half where we were not able to convert our chances, but by all means did compete St. Kevins had the lead at half time 6-3 to 0-1. There were some strong words at half time and  t was a different team that came out for second half. The effort that the lads put into this half were brilliant. And we outscored the opposition 3-8 to 1-4. This is what this team can do. And you can do this every time that you take to the field. Final score Kilara Og 3-9 St. Kevins 7-7.

On Bank holiday  Monday Duarigle Gaels visited Kilworth for our latest football game. And as we have had a good start to our league campaign the lads were in ready to build on this. And from the off the boys took control of the match and took an early lead. The lads continued the pressure and for the first 20 minutes we were dominating the match. But now Duarigle Gaels got them self into the match with a goal. And for the next 10 minutes dominated the match. At the short whistle we were down 0-3 to 3-3.

The half time team talk was clear, you are still in this game and can turn this around. From the start of the second half until the final whistle  we were second best, and could only add one point. This was our first defeat in football this year, but there is a lot of positive to take from the match. We will continue to improve and the boys will learn from this. Final score Kilara Og 0-4 Duarigle Gaels 8-6.

U 14 Hurling


On Thursday last we made the short trip to Fermoy to take on their U14 team in Hurling. Looking to build on the good start that this team has made, we were looking for a battling performance from the lads. From the start the lads got stuck in and gave as good as they got. It was an enthralling game of hurling , where both teams showed great skills and determination. At the half time there was only a puck of a ball between us, Fermoy holding the lead 1-3 to 2-3.

The second half brought the same entertaining game. Both teams playing good solid hurling. These two teams are very well matched and half way into the second half we were holding a slender lead of 2 points.  We got pinned back a s the time was running out and Fermoy got back on level terms. And with just minutes left on the clock they got a goal, we were not able to replay to this and unfortunately concede another with the last puck of the ball. As we look back on the game we had our chances to put the game beyond Fermoy but we did not take our chances. All the same the boys are making great improvements.

The team PJ Ahearn, S Hegarty(1-3), P Hynes, J Casey(0-1), M Gowen, B Casey, J Foley, D Allen, K Heggtveit, B Carey, C Dunne, M Sheehan(1-0), E O’Donovan, L Coffey(0-1), D Hynes, J Kearney, O Collins O’Mahoney

Commiserations to Kilworth Celtic U13 team who lost out on the double.

We are well into our season with all teams doing well in their age groups. Keep an eye on the group text for games and training  sessions, the championship is starting shortly.

U 13 footballers start with a win


On Monday the 13th April we started our football league with a home tie against Ballycastle Gaels in Araglen. With 20 lads tugging out on the night we were not short on talented footballers. Right from the off we got stuck in, and opened the scoring with an early point. Both teams were up for this game and it was nip and tuck for the first quarter. We then got some daylight on the scoreboard with a well worked goal. And as the first half was coming to a close we were leading 1-7 to 0-5. At the half time interval the message was shot but important, keep this up, don’t let them back in. We are well in control, but you have to continue with the pressure. We started the second half with a bang, one quick goal followed by another. This settled the whole team down and the boys now let loose. A display of fast flowing  football was displayed. Ballycastle did not give up and had some good scores of their own. As the full time whistle was sounded we had eight different scorers, the back line had kept the opposition to very few chances and when they did break through our keeper, as usual, played his part in keeping the net clean. Final score Kilara Og 6-12 Ballycastle Gaels 1-7. Well done boys.

The team on the night :J Wheeler, E O’Donovan, P Coughlan, C Hyland, C Coakley, B Carey(1-0) ,J Carney(0-1), D Allen, L Coffey(1-1) M Carey(1-4), D Jordan(0-2), L Carey, M Sheehan(1-0), K Heggtveit(1-3), J  Buckley(1-0), J Foley(0-1), D Hynes, CJ Kennelly, D Devine, O Collins O’Mahony.



U14 hurlers continue their good form.


On Thursday evening the 16th April we travelled to Castletownroche to play Ballycastle Gaels, this was the second league match for the team and we were going to build on our resent good form. We had just the bare minimum of players on the night, but this was not going to slow us down. In a very evenly fought first half we were just shading it at the short whistle by a couple of point. Encouraging words were said at halftime, keep this going and stay focused on the task in hand. As the second half evolved we got our self into the lead and were playing good solid hurling. With a few minutes left on the clock we conceded a goal. But we were sill holding on to the lead. But with the time running out Ballycastle scored a point to level the match. Final score Kilara Og 3-5 Ballycastle Gaels 2-8. This was the one that got away, but we are still undefeated. It goes to show how much progress this team is making and that there is some good hurlers here.

The team on the night: J Carney, E O’Donovan, J Casey, C Dunne, M Gowen, P Hynes, PJ Ahern, D Allen, L Coffey, M Sheehan, J Tobin Allen, J Foley, S Hegarty, K Heggtveit, O Collins O’Mahoney.

U14 Feile Peile.


On Saturday last we travelled to Whitechurch to take part in the B section of this year’s Feile Peile completion. We were paired with the following teams,  Whitechurch, Ballygarvan, Ilen Rovers, Castlelyons. We did not know what to expect from these teams as it would be the first time that we would have encountered them.  We stared the completion against Ilen Rovers, and after a hard fought match it  ended with a defeat 1-2 to 2-6. Next up was Whitechurch, and again a very close encounter, that Whitechurch won 1-0 to 1-3. We regrouped with some food and got ourselves ready for our next match, Castlelyons. We are now getting into our stride and took control from the off. With great determination and guts so we dominated throughout this match and won 3-7 to 0-1. Next up Ballygarvan, and it was clear from the off that they were the toughest opposition of the day. We were out fought and lost 1-1 to 6-8.

This tournament has been an eye opener for the boys, in the way that we play our games. We have to stand up and fight more. Over all this was a very useful exercise as the selectors move the boy’s into different positions and gave all of them new positions.  One very positive from this was that we had nine different point scorers on the day. This will stand to us when we recommence our league campaign and for the championship later in the year. We would like to thank the parents who travelled and supported on the day, and also to all of the coaches and selectors. 


The team that travelled was; PJ Ahern, S Hegarty (1-2), P Hynes (0-1), J Casey (0-1), M Gowan, B Casey, J Foley, D Allen, K Heggtveit (0-1), D Jordan (2-3), C Hyland, J Wheeler, CJ Kenneally, B Carey (1-0), M Sheehan, E O’Donovan, L Coffey (0-1), J Carney, J Buckley (1-0), M Carey (1-1), L Carey.

On Monday last we had our first hurling league match of the year. This year we have taken another step up the ladder with this team, they are playing in the A grade in both codes.

Charleville was the opposition this evening and they should give us a good indication of how the team has progressed.

The first 10 minutes were nip and tuck, and both sides took time to settle. The visitors got on the board first a goal after some good play. We did not let this upset us and continued to push forward. The next score came from the visitors, another goal. The heads did not drop and we pushed forward and after some great play, Luke netted our first goal. We kept the pressure on and added two good points from open play by  Killian and  Michael. Unfortunately we were not able to add to the score, but conceded two goals and a point.

Second half we were playing against the strong wind and were kept under severe pressure for most of the half. The backs held Charleville at a distance and only one goal was scored.  Ryan did very well and had some great saves. Towards the end of the half we added a goal to the score line. This came from great play all the way from the back line through midfield and into the forwards with Luke slotting the ball home. Final score Kilara 2-2 Charleville 5-6

The team put in a good performance and there is a lot of positive to take from the match. There is still a lot of work to be done, and it will all fall into place.


The team line out R Jordan, D Devine, E O’Donovan, B Carey, C Dunne, J Carney, L Carey (2-0), D Allen, K Heggtveit (0-1), M Sheehan (0-1), CJ Kenneally, C Hyland, C Coakley, O O’Mahoney
